Great Mod.

I'm having an issue however with the Announcements.

It seems like no matter what I put in to global announcements forum ID it just pulls all announcements from the board. I have searched through the replies here and it has been brought up a number of times; however, everyone seemed to skip right over this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking through the code now but I wanted to see if anyone had encountered and or knew what the problem was. Was this field just not set up in the actual code? Anyways, I'm hoping someone will actually respond to this question this time around.

Thanks much!

I think it is but is very complicated. Or you could move your phpBB 3 to root directory and change the config.
The box said 'You need Windows XP or better' .... so I installed linux.

So how exactly does the portal work then ? Let's say I install it in the /phpbb directory, how do I access the portal ? Still by phpbb dir or ... ?

Yeah,m your portal is in the same directory. It displays portal.php first instead of index.php.

So x.com/phpbb/portal.php
The box said 'You need Windows XP or better' .... so I installed linux.

Hi,

Is this portal still in Beta?

Also, I was looking at "http://www.phpbb3portal.com/" and the "Latest news" display. That is the only way to display news/posts? You can't show the text from each post? The user has to click the link to see the text?

Thanks

Hopefully this is the correct thread...

I'm trying to install the canver-portal MOD (phpBB3 Portal v1.2.2).

The instructions aren't exactly clear so I've obviously made a mistake somewhere.

I copied the files and edited the relevant files as explained in install.xml
I ran the install and it all seemed to go OK.

However, when I try to access the ACP I get:
"General Error
Language file portal.php couldn't be opened."

If I try and navigate to the forum I get:
"General Error
template->_tpl_load_file(): File ./styles/prosilver/template/portal/portal_body.html does not exist or is empty"

So it looks like the language and style files are missing....

Is it perhaps because I didn't copy the CVS folders from /portal/block etc?
The instructions don't actually say anything about those folders...

I saw a general guide and it states:
"if you are using prosilver based theme open;
psosilver.xml files and make changes than copy template files into your themes template folder..
else if you are using subsilver2 based themes open;
subsilver2.xml files make the cahnges than copy templates to your themes template folder.."

I'm using prosilver so what changes exactly should I be making?
And which files? The ones in the forum root or from the mod folder?

Any help appreciated.

I am having trouble with my portal showing any "announcements" and "polls" if they are set as Global Annoucements

For example I have a new poll that is set as a Global Annoucement
But it wont show on the portal page under "Polls"
But if I change the poll to a standard topic it does show

Same thing happens for annoucements

I have both the annoucement and poll settings set to pull from all forums

Any ideas what could be wrong?

Thanks in advance

What on earth is CVS?
And I can see no .htaccess in the download.

So I don't need to worry about installing it with that?
Or do I?
And what about .htaccess? (I can manually edit that one.)
